Sad news of a non-archaeological nature Insty has a post on Arthur C. Clarke's death: "The world is better for his having lived, and worse for his having died."

He was one of my favorites. I've blogged on 2001 a few times, and read a bunch of his books besides the Odyssey series. I read the second of the Rama series last summer and started the third installment, but haven't finished it yet. Frankly, of the three biggies mentioned by a link in that post -- Clarke, Asimov, and Heinlein -- Clarke was probably my fave, though I really liked Heinlein's earlier stuff.

Thanks for the books, ACC. And the movie; it was great. You did well.
